Press X to Not Die by All Seeing Eye Games is an interactive live-action adventure. You play the protagonist in the movie yourself, make decisions, and try to stay alive. The whole thing is deliberately trashy and in the style of a B-movie. The game is ridiculous, funny, bloody, and full of crazy moments.

The platformer game offers an unique battle system that is based on geometrical shapes and works like rock-paper-scissors.

“According to the Flat Kingdom’s legends, the world was once filled with malice and chaos because the 3D realm dominated all. But one day, a wise sorcerer created six Magical Jewels that kept the effects of the third dimension at bay, granting peace and prosperity to the beautiful 2D world. However, one day an evil masked thief named Hex stole one of those Jewels and kidnapped the princess. This disrupted the balance and made the chaos return.”

The game features lovely art, many extras, and music by the legendary composer! Try the demo and convince yourself!

Where We Lay Our Scene – Review

Where We Lay Our Scene

Where We Lay Our Scene is the latest visual novel by Cyanide Tea and was a project for NaNoRenO 2016. With four character routes and 13 different endings, it was an ambitious project, but you can tell from the very beginning that it was worth the effort. I want to highlight some things I really liked about WWLOS here:

All of the characters find themselves at some kind of crossroads in their lives and have to deal with certain issues concerning for example identity, profession, or a mixture of both. I’m sure many players will be able to identify with at least one of the characters, because the cast is extremely diverse. Not only do all of the characters have unique personalities, they also develop throughout the game and become realistic and palpable persons. Furthermore, the game features characters of different nationalities, sexualities, and body types.

The CGs fit to the tone of the respective character’s route perfectly and although I wish there were more CGs, I feel like they summarize the essence of the depicted relationship. Speaking of art: I just knew Auro wouldn’t disappoint! The art is top-notch; the sprites and backgrounds are detailed and we get to see the cast in many different outfits and poses, while the GUI looks nice and clean, making the game look very polished.

It was very easy for me to fall in love with Christian, Oliver, Sacha and Viola, because they all showed certain features I find in myself, and although Rainier’s route wasn’t as engrossing for me as the other routes, it only proves that the game offers something for every taste. Personally, I liked that the game tackles important topics while being fun and engaging – I think it’s great for people who have to deal with similar problems in their lives, that they can identify with fictional characters and can take away something for their personal real life. There’s no better way to learn something new, to become a better, more open-minded person while experiencing something in a fun way, because like Oscar Wilde already knew, “life imitates art”.

Christian Marino has become a household name, what with his face and body always visible when you open a magazine or look out your subway train window. But now famous model Christian Marino finds himself at a crossroads. What will he do with his life once his well-known and much-cherished looks fade? Is there even anything more to him below the surface that everyone else sees? As he considers these issues of future and identity, he’s suddenly cast as the lead role in a film based on a bestselling novel. With fresh new challenges to face in an unfamiliar environment, this just might be the solution Christian was looking for—to more problems than one.

Do yourself a favor and play the demo of the game! With its $4.99 price tag it has a more than fair price. Also stay tuned for the upcoming Greenlight campaign, so the game can eventually be released on Steam.

In this sci-fi game you take on the role of Helios; the newest fighter aboard the starship Kepler. You will meet many familiar faces from the comic, but also new characters. However, you don’t need any previous knowledge of the comic, you can enjoy the game independently.

The German version was first shown on the YaYuCon – Yaoi & Yuri Convention in Dachau. I wasn’t able to attend the convention, but I was told the game was received positively! I hope I can show you some pictures of the convention soon.

In the role of Helios, you can date one (or several) boys; Cain, Abel, Deimos, Selene, and Hayden! Furthermore, you have to solve a mysterious incident aboard the starship. Please note that the game contains explicit erotic scenes, and is therefore only suitable for players at the age of 18 or older. The visual novel works on every modern browser, no matter if it’s an desktop computer, a tablet, or even a smart phone; after a free registration you can continue your game on any device.
